Default Feeder Help!

I have had the same feeder for six years, a boss ame systems plastic barrel. It has been a great feeder until a squirrel ate a 3" hole in the lid! The barrel is larger than a 55 gallon drum so I need some ideas how to fix or replace the lid. Any suggestions? Or if anyone has an old replacement that would work too.

Tried the duct tape and they just ate it and the lid. I may check into the drain pan idea. Thanks for the suggestions. Keep them coming.
